Water Vs. Coke


Water or Coke?
I could not believe this..... Very interesting


#1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
(Likely applies to half the world population)

#2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak
that it is mistaken for hunger.

#3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.

#4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs
for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of

#5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

#6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of
water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain
for up to 80% of sufferers.

#7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term
memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on
the computer screen or on a printed page.

#8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of
colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast
by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop
bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water
you should drink every day?


#1. In many states the highway patrol carries
two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from
the highway after a car accident.

#2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke
and it will be gone in two days.

#3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the
toilet bowl and let the 'real thing' sit for one hour,
then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes
stains from vitreous china.

#4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds
Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

#5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour
a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble
away the corrosion.

#6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola
to the rusted bolt for several minutes.

#7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into
the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake.
Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix
with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.

#8... To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke
into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run
through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen
grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your


#1 the active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid.
It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric
also leaches calcium from bones and is a major
contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.

#2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup! (the concentrate) the
commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place
cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.

#3. The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean
engines of the trucks for about 20 years!
Now the question is, would you like a glass of water?

I am the one who forwarded info. of "Water vs. Coke"; & I thought I should mention a small warning (or a tip) regarding drinking water.
While I completely agree with the recommendation to drink plenty of water on a daily basis, about a year ago I learned something about drinking water from a very good source--a nutrition book written by Dr. Don Colbert. He is Benny Hinn's personal physician; and has written many mini-books about health which are excellent (he really knows his stuff).

Anyway, the one thing I clearly remember from skimming through a couple chapters in one of his books is about not drinking a lot of water when you eat.

According to him, when you drink too much water at mealtimes (he recommends keeping it to 8 ounces or less) it has a tendency to wash out or minimize the hydrochloric acid in your stomach--which is needed in the right amount to work the process of digestion of food. So too much liquid at mealtime will hinder proper digestion of the food in your stomach.

So when I eat, I keep liquids to a minimum at that time. Once my stomach has had a good amount of time to do most of the digestion & I don't feel full anymore--those are the times when I drink plenty of water to keep myself hydrated. So it is a matter of timing when you drink water, if you want to achieve optimal health.

And while I am on subject of digestion/nutrition, let me also say that it is so very important to take a fiber supplement daily. Most people don't get enough healthy fiber in their diet; and would benefit from taking a supplement.
I started taking a product from GNC in 2005; it is a purified psyllium husk called "Colon Pure".
It's a very beneficial product!!

And one thing I believe it can be used for is to help you to eat less (if you are wanting to lose weight or are tempted with gluttony). I have found that if I have a serving of this fiber supplement--taken with a glass of water either right before you eat or during mealtime--then I feel it in my stomach occupying some of the space & thus I will be able to eat less at that meal. You will feel fuller faster.

Plus it really, really aids in the overall digestion process. You will notice the difference right away; and you won't have to bother eating huge daily portions of high fiber foods like some cereals have. It is amazing how very easy it will become to have B.M.'s.

I used to have to "endure" eating large amounts of high-fiber cereal almost everyday; which usually are bland & hard to eat as they are 'kinda like eating wood pulp or something.

I hope you don't mind my digressing here on to this subject; but it is something I am passionate about as I have found that a fiber supplement has been quite beneficial to me in last several years. I think also a side effect of taking a natural fiber supplement is that it will work to remove "junk" that is residing in your G.I. tract & especially the colon. It's important to keep these "pipes" clean & I think it may also reduce chances of getting cancer(s) in these areas.
Hope you will find this helpful info.

My late uncle a union pipe fitter from Indiana used coca cola to loosen pipe fittings. Just brush around the fitting with a tooth brush, wait 10 minutes and Voila!

Wow. Glad I'm not a Coke drinker!

Interesting info, Jeff. You hear so much about colon cleansing. This seems to be important. I should try that.

This - water vs. coke was a very helpful and fun learning piece.

Notice how the pictures appear and then disappear. That's because I didn't download them through blogger.

Also, remember, if you're going to have a cola, have a Coke and not a Pepsi. Pepsico sponsors all sorts of gay,lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender things like ads and parades and conventions and the like. They totally support the gay agenda in our culture and don't mind poisoning the minds of young people.

Oh, I forgot. I love cherry coke.

concerned said...

did a search over at www.truthorfiction.com:
Defenders, including the folks at Coca-Cola, say there are many foods that have substances like acids in them such as fruit juices and buttermilk, and that the body seems to handle them just fine. The operative substance is phosphoric acid, which, in pure form, can eat through metal. Edible acids, however, should not be compared with them, according to the defenders.

Here is the list. If you have any of the answers, let us know:

1. The highway patrol carrying Coke to clean up blood at car accidents. Unproven! (Help us out) If this is true, we haven't found it.
2. A t-bone steak will be eaten away by Coke in two days. Unproven! (Help us out)
3. Clean a toilet with Coke. Truth! According to www.howtocleananything.com, the popular household hint guru Mary Ellen says some coke in the toilet for an hour can do the trick.
4. Remove stains from vitreous china. Truth! According to columnist Heloise.
5. Use Coke and a ball of aluminum foil for rust on chrome. Truth! According to Joey Greene's www.wackyuses.com
6. Clean corrosion from car battery terminals. Truth! This is true of a lot of carbonated beverages.
7. Use a Coke-soaked cloth to loosen a rusted bolt. Truth! According to Mary Ellen.
8. Use a can of Coke in a load of greasy laundry. Truth! According to Mary Ellen.
9. Dissolve a nail in 4 days in Coke. Unproven! (Help us out)
10. Hazardous materials signs are required on trucks carrying Coke concentrate.

"My husband and I drive the big rigs and often carried Pepsi products...and it is true of all soda in the concentrated form...YES we did have to put the hazardous placards up for the load. Also the driver has to have passed the hazardous material test and have that on his CDL's (Commercial Driver's License)

Thanks Concerned,

I need people like you to keep me on the straight and narrow.

Jeff, above, just got this email from someone and forwarded it on to me. Neither of us did research.

It sounded interesting. It does need research.

I was sitting with my cousin last night, he's a doctor (retired) and said he didn't think Coke was bad for the stomach - said the same thing about acids in the stomach, that it can handle a lot!

Interesting the other stuff that was corroborated that Coke does do! I had heard some guy say that he uses Coke on engines. But like my cousin said, the only problem is dealing with the sugar - who wants to deal with all that sugar?

Jeff, as for the Colon Pure, my cousin says, yes, it has been proven that fiber reduces the likelihood of colon cancer and yes, fiber before a meal could probably help reduce hunger pangs and thus help in losing weight. However, he does not believe in "detoxifying" - he thinks that's a bunch of bunk.

There are things I don't trust the medical community on, but you have to respect the wisdom of a doctor, ultimately.
